On Tuesday, July 28, from 7:30 to 9 a.m. at the Broadway Palm Theater, the Florida Chamber of Commerce and the Lee County Alliance of Chambers are will come together and host the Local Legislative Delegation Awards.

The Legislative Awards recognize legislators whose leadership helped strengthen Florida's economy through job growth and the protection of the free enterprise system.

Senator Garret Richter will be honored with the Most Valuable Legislator Award. Senator Richter earned the 2009 Most Valuable Legislator Award because of his leadership on several critical pro-business bills. Throughout the Legislative Session, Senator Richter continued to champion the need for less burdensome restrictions on Florida's employers, helping to deliver victories for the business community during a tough session.

There will be a presentation from Gabe Sheheane, Legislative Affairs Liaison for The Florida Chamber regarding Amendment 4 (Hometown Democracy). Hometown Democracy is one of the single largest issues the business community will be facing in the upcoming year. Gabe will lay out a plan on how the business community can come together to fight this "Vote on Everything" proposed Amendment.

Come join members of your local delegation including, Senator Richter, Representatives Aubuchon, Williams and Hudson plus many more on Tuesday July 28, at 7:30 a.m. at Broadway Palm Dinner Theater.
